In celebration of International Women’s Day, join us for the launch of the Second Edition Global Women, Peace & Security Index.

Join the Institute for Global Development for a conversation on the findings of the Second Edition of the Global Women Peace & Security (WPS) Index, which ranks countries on women’s comprehensive wellbeing and analyses trends in gender equality.

The inaugural WPS Index, launched in 2017, was the most comprehensive ranking to date of women’s well-being around the globe, measuring three key dimensions of women’s well-being—inclusion, justice, and security. The second edition includes several major innovations, including expanded coverage to 167 countries and assessment of data at the subnational level. Trends over time reveal important drivers of progress as well as major areas of concern.

This event will be followed by networking drinks. Register for free HERE.
